Centuries ago, the eucalyptus tree was thought to cleanse the environment,
so the frail and sickly would choose to live in areas where these fragrant trees
grew, hoping for recovery from their ailments. While just living under the trees
might not be the cure people hoped for, the tree does indeed offer healing.
The Australian Aborigines applied crushed eucalyptus leaves to wounds to promote
healing. They also used eucalyptus leaves to fight infection and relieve muscular
pain. In India, eucalyptus is used to cool fever and fight contagious diseases.
Even Western surgeons recognized the benefits of eucalyptus, and have used a
eucalyptus solution to wash out operation cavities. Today, eucalyptus is used
in many different types of pharmaceutical products, from vapor rubs to cold
remedies. Even veterinarians and dentists use eucalyptus in their practices.
Its sweet, menthol, woody scent coupled with its proven healing abilities makes
it a favorite essential oil in aromatherapy.
